Email share

With news headlines coming at us on every imaginable platform, 24-hours a day, it’s difficult to keep up with the news, much less understand it in context. But, a new series on the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA) aims to change that.

Retro Report premiers at 8 p.m., Oct. 7 on OETA.

Retro Report aims to widen the discussion, revealing the story behind the story, providing new insights into how today’s events have been shaped by the past.

Hosted by journalist Celeste Headlee and artist Masud Olufani and featuring New Yorker humorist Andy Borowitz, Retro Report takes viewers on a journey into the most important stories of the day, looking at them through the lens of their often-surprising historical roots, providing new insight and dispelling myths.

OETA provides essential educational content and services that inform, inspire and connect Oklahomans to ideas and information that enrich our quality of life.
